I'm a licensed structural engineer (P.E.) and work full time. A few people approached me asking me to do small engineering jobs on the side. I accepted the first few, which were minor, well within my area of expertise, and did not carry much risk. Lately, the offers were for bigger projects, taking about 20 to 40 hours of engineering and CAD time. I plan on purchasing liability insurance going forward if I accept them, and plan on taking on more work to supplement my income. All the work will be done in Pennsylvania. Does anyone here know of any special requirements I need to be aware of? Like do I need to form a corporation (I understand it will protect my personal assets should I get sued), or get a license from the state (other then P.E.)? Has anyone on this board started their own business?Thanks in advance.
